Premarket Prep GBPNZD 10152020

This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for the Forex pair GBPNZD. This prep builds off of my week­ly trade plan I made here:

The pur­pose of a pre­mar­ket prep is to find setups with­in my week­ly trade plan bias

Week­ly Focus Points

  • Only trade off M30/M15 for entries. M30, time-based, or look for exits after 2 hours (4 TPOs). Unless the entry is real­ly late.
  • SL place­ment
    • Add spread for shorts, sub­tract for longs

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing track slight­ly above last week’s body but with­in range still

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Price retraced the pre­vi­ous day back up from demand at D1-C‑D 1.94736 to D1-C‑S 1.95562 leav­ing a long buy­ing wick behind and clos­ing as an inside bar at the 50% mark. Closed above W1 QLo.
    • H4 phase 2 ran into some con­ges­tion around D‑C-S 1.95562 form­ing a RBR. Price hasn’t arrived at H4 QHi yet
    • Yes­ter­day was a near com­plete retrace­ment of the pre­vi­ous uni­di­rec­tion­al day down
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Yesterday’s val­ue was cre­at­ed below the brack­et­ing range but price pushed back up into the range
    • ADR: 1567
    • ASR: 1402
      • 35
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.96119
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.93452
      • Cur­rent­ly above VAH, slight­ly out­side range, 0.7xASR


  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑S 1.95562 at range high
    • ADR 0.5 Low at VAH
    • ADR 0.5 High at H4 QHi and D1-C‑S 1.96399
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above val­ue, out­side range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.9xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Mod­er­ate to large imbal­ance. H4 mak­ing RBR although messy. Could see a con­tin­u­a­tion to the move. How­ev­er, H4 QHi and D1-C‑S 1.96399 might prove reac­tive and since yes­ter­day and this morn­ing we trad­ed up we might see a mean reversion. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Rever­sion (short) 
    • D1-C‑S 1.96399, QHi
    • Pre­ferred: price action rever­sal. Poten­tial­ly an exten­sion up slight­ly lat­er in the ses­sion fol­lowed by failed auc­tion. Oth­er­wise a rever­sal with­in IB plus exten­sion down. 
  • Hypo 2 — Con­tin­u­a­tion (long) (risky)
    • Price above M30 VWAP, H4 mak­ing RBRs, hav­ing trad­ed back into pre­vi­ous­ly formed sup­ply, might see a continuation. 
    • Pre­ferred: Strong IB exten­sion up ear­ly in the ses­sion. Sus­tained auc­tion tak­ing out LTF supplies. 
  • Hypo 3 — Return to Value
    • D1-C‑D 1.94736 at VAH and ADR 0.5 low could see a bounce although prox­im­i­ty is a bit far. Per­haps lat­er on in the session. 
    • Pre­ferred: Hypo 1, TPO struc­ture built and price action reversal.

    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
